December 1, 2017: World AIDS Day

20 Nov 2017 | By INSERM (Newsroom) | Event | International day

Friday December 1, 2017, is World AIDS Day.

Introduced by the World Health Organization in 1988 and observed in many countries each year since, this day aims to inform and raise awareness of the prevention, treatment and management of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/AIDS.

AIDS is a scourge that affects the world’s poorest countries and populations most particularly. In 2015, 37 million people[1] were living with HIV.

Big Killers: AIDS

Actively involved in research relating to the virus, Inserm researchers are mobilized all year round to find new strategies for its prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

Earlier this year, France hosted the 9th IAS Conference on HIV Science biennial gathering of the International AIDS Society. Inserm was one of the partners involved.
